The new Jurassic Park movie, Jurassic World, will have everything: Chris Pratt, romance, intrigue, new scary dinosaurs—did we mention Chris Pratt? But according to director Colin Trevorrow, the sequel will also have one thing that the original movie had: the T-Rex that squashed that car with the kids in it and totally scared your socks off as a kid.
Trevorrow had this to say about our favorite prehistoric nightmare on two legs:
I mean, we took the original design and obviously, technology has changed. So, it’s going to move a little bit differently, but it’ll move differently because it’s older. And we’re giving her some scars and we’re tightening her skin. So, she has that feeling of, like, an older Burt Lancaster. And this movie is her Unforgiven.
The old beezy is seriously ready to come back and bust a cap in someone's butt (not Chris Pratt's, please).
So much time has passed since the original Jurassic Park movie came out, that the crew actually had to rebuild all the dinosaurs—but Trevorrow said that the technological revamp made for some awesome dinosaurs:
We got to build everyone from the ground up because technology has changed so much that everything is a rebuild. And I got to bring in dinosaurs that I’ve always thought deserved a big scene. There’s an Ankylosaurus in this movie; was a really big scene and that’s just a bad ass dinosaur. And there are others. There’s smaller appearances, some bigger appearances. You know, we have an underwater reptile. I’m sure you’ve heard about that. That thing is pretty cool. We have a new kind of flying dinosaur that no one’s ever seen before, you know, in addition to the Pteranodons that are really scary. And I didn’t want to just throw the kitchen sink at it. Each of these movies has done a good job at just very carefully, in a measured way, increasing the new dinosaurs that you see. But, there’s a lot of dinosaurs in the movie for sure.
We wouldn't expect anything else. Jurassic World premieres June 12.
